We first took note of Barcelona-based design studio/creative agency Dora Daar when we stumbled upon their Oráculo Carpet, a circular woven rug that wraps around the base of a tree. It was designed by founders and best friends Nat Sly and Pepi de Boissieu after a trip to Senegal, where it’s common to see families gather under the shade of a tree. “[It] was their place of reunion,” they say. “Under the canopy of the trees, daily dramas and moving love stories were played out.”
This attention to the poetry in human-made objects is apparent in all the products they’ve curated for their online store. The collection is spare—just 23 items and three workshops (one on how to create altars, another on astrology, and a third on meditative drawing)—but every single thing feels considered and well-made (the two collaborate with artisans, who execute their ideas).
From their website: “We aim for and deeply believe in changing the way we produce and consume. All of our projects are locally sourced and sustainable. We are engaged with the human beings that manufacture each of our goods and therefore committed to fair trade. We believe that this is the new luxury, one that is produced honestly, truthfully, with real time and thought put into each project.”
Below, a selection of our favorites from Dora Daar.
